“The doctors and staff at Stephens & Gatewood are amazing. I’ve trusted them with my family’s dental care for 6 years and I cannot say enough good things about them.

If you are living with complications caused by TMJ, the team at Stephens & Gatewood Dentistry is here for you. Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (or TMJ) is a term that describes pain or discomfort surrounding the joint and muscles in the jaw. It can be brought on by a physical injury or could occur from having misaligned teeth or an off bite. If left untreated, chronic symptoms can have a negative effect on one’s quality of life.
TMJ can cause:
- severe headaches
- neck pain
- ringing in the ears
- clicking in the jaw
- numbness or loss of sensation
- trouble sleeping
- difficulty or pain while chewing
If you have TMJ, you don’t have to suffer helplessly with chronic pain. We offer treatment options that address the root issue, rather than simply masking the problem with pain medication. Call Stephens & Gatewood Dentistry to schedule an appointment at one of our two conveniently located offices. We’ll work together to solve your TMJ troubles, so you can finally enjoy the comfort you deserve.
